UPDATE 7/31: SCCAP has received a second check of $371 from Papa Johns’ to purchase additional fans. This, along with an earlier donation of $465, brings the contribution from the local locations of this pizza chain to $836 for fans. Thanks so much for this generous donation!
The South Central Community Action Program has 36 additional fans to provide to clients who are elderly, disabled or have children under five. These fans will be available thanks to the generosity of the local Papa John’s restaurants and Walmart.
Papa John’s got the ball rolling by holding a special night earlier this month when a portion of its proceeds were donated to SCCAP for fans. That generated a $465 donation to purchase fans.
Walmart helped out by giving our agency a 20 percent discount on those fans and by also donating an extra seven fans.
The fans will make the summer safer and more comfortable for those who receive them. They will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to clients who have been served in other SCCAP programs. There is a limit of one fan per household.
Earlier this summer, SCCAP distributed 50 fans taht were donated by WRTV 6. We deeply appreciate the generosity of Papa John’s, Walmart and WRTV 6.
